    I worked at Nokia for less than a year

    Pros

    This is a good technical company, you will get a mentor who will guide you at work, this is very important in the early stage in your career. Also you get to learn all the advanced techknowledge in an internship experience

    Cons

    The managers are busy and you don't really get to meet your manager in a regular time
